The department of POLIS is pleased to announce that the winner of the 2017 PhD poster competition is Nabila Idris.

Nabila Idris

Nabila is studying the politics of policymaking. Her current research investigates the political settlement behind social protection policy in Bangladesh. Other than this, she is also interested in social policy, civil society, youth activism and ethics in development.

She is a second year PhD student in Development Studies and also the founding president of CommunityAction -- a youth-led civil society organisation in Bangladesh that has over a thousand members. The organisation built Bangladesh's first digital textbook library for the visually impaired, and runs a successful scholarship program for underprivileged students as well as a business development and seed funding program for extreme poor households. The upshot of these activities is that she has been interested in the status quo of girls in Bangladesh for the longest time because that had a direct impact on her work. 

Her poster presents her findings and conclusions after studying the lives of Bangladeshi girls and how they learn, earn, save and keep safe.
